Clyde Butcher’s ongoing exhibition, Living Waters and the Florida Landscape features 29 of Butcher’s black and white, large-format breathtaking photographs. He composes his work throughout the US and helps the public experience scenes out of reach and untouched. Butcher has been called the next Ansel Adams by Popular Photography magazine, awarded as a humanitarian for acting for the betterment of his community and recognized as a conservationist for bringing issues to the forefront of public consciousness through his art.

 

 

 

 

The Living Waters and the Florida Landscape is a traveling exhibition by the Aquatic Preserve Society. Butcher, a longtime, devoted supporter of environmental causes, donated the photographs to the Aquatic Preserve Program in 2000. This gallery is a collaborative effort with the St. Lucie Cultural Alliance, the Aquatic Preserve Society, the Indian River Lagoon Aquatic Preserves, and the Friends of Spoil Islands.

 

 

Water/Ways, a partnership with Florida Humanities, the Smithsonian Institute, and the City of Port St. Lucie is presented as a part of the Museum on Main Street program, a national, state, and local partnership to bring exhibitions to local cultural organizations. The exhibition explores the endless motion of the water cycle, water’s effect on landscape, settlement and migration, and its impact on culture and spirituality.
